Another restaurant in Paternoster that takes full advantage of the number of guests that frequent the town. Food that doesn't closely match what is on the menu. 40minutes to get a beer and then even longer to get the next. Avoid. You'd better spend your hard earned money on the stock market. That's the "burger" below. The sauce was extra.

Beautiful views but the food is average. Plastic chairs... :( the staff are friendly but it doesn't make up for the fact that the food is just OK.

popped in for lunch - no reservations made - view incredible - staff friendly but they had sold out of crayfish byu the time we were there and that was the main reason for going out for lunch, so we were disappointed but ordered salmon and it was great.

With all the walking it was time for food. Stopped in at Skatkis was welcomed by friendly staff. Food good and the view of the bay is stunning.

In a town where dinner reservations are absolutely essential, the fact that they let us in was this restaurant's single redeeming quality. The service was friendly but sporadic, the fish was a gluten fest, the salad was wilted and the parsley mash without the green stuff altogether... But as I said... they let us in.

We called here for lunch on a day when there were power cuts on the west coast, nearly everywhere else was booked up. The service wasn't bad, we waited longer than normal though. The food the 3 of us ordered was average but we hadn't expected fine dining. All in all it was not a bad place on a very... More

Though bad recommendation is never nice to give, we have to say that this was not a great experience. The rosé was warm, (they did offer to put ice cubes in) and the first and the main course came at the same time. The waitress was nice but unfortunately it didn't make up for the average food and experience...

We visited this restaurant for dinner. After waiting 15 minutes, we had not even been acknowledged by the waitron. There was only 1 waitron for the entire restaurant. There was an elderly lady at the reception, and quite frankly, she was very grumpy. When we finally got the elder ladies attention, she came to take orders. We ordered 2 gin... More

Very basic menu, bacon was terrible "very thick and difficult to cut". Not many appetizing options. There are so few restaurants offering bfast in paternoster. It would be wise for them to give a few more options.. like bacon, avo, sausage,croissants, scrambled eggs or something besides the very basics.. could also be a bit more generous with portions. Other than... More
